What is Sand Casting?

What is Sand Casting?

Sand Casting is a solidification process. In the casting process, sand is used to build a mould, following which liquid metal is poured into the mould to form a component. Therefore, the microstructure can be finely tuned, such as grain structure, phase transformations and precipitation. However, defects such as shrinkage porosity, cracks and segregation are […]
